Since he has terminal cancer you get null points for that.

What are the rules? We need someone to organise it then we can all follow the rules. I agree with Tony btw if someone is terminally ill then you should get no points

Well, they were never the rules in any game that I've seen or the one that I played.  It makes it impossible to score any points.

Surely the whole point of the game is to try to predict unexpected or unlikely deaths? You don't pick saturdays lottery numbers on sunday morning

Not necessarily, you need some 'dead certs' (no pun intended) as well as some wild cards, otherwise everyone would list the same celebs.

I'd have thought that it's far more sporting to pick Michael Douglas (early detection oral cancer survival rates are +80%) with bonus points for a Jones the Gold Digger remarriage than a ninety year old comic.






Go on then. I'll have Liz Taylor too.

She likes 'em young these days.

Liz is on my list too, however, she's had so many near death experiences that she'll probably outlive us all.

Jerry Lee Lewis.

No one knows why he is still alive since he's lived on a diet of alcohol and amphetamine since the 1950s.

We also had a Joker to play in ours, double points.  It's better if you play in teams, seeing as we're not playing for money.

Jones the Gold Digger

Go on, say it out loud with a Welsh accent.
























Did you sound like you're from Bombay?

Max Boyce??

I had successfully purged the memory of the Welsh **** from my memory till you mentioned him. Why put him on your Dead Pool or is it wishful thinking?

Wishful thinking reduces the odds due to the potential for psychopathic expurgation.


Say 10/1, pushing to 13/2 if the Max Boyce expurgation involves a giant vegetable. Obviously, even psychopathic killers are only human and a Valley marrow can only be resisted for so long.

D'you reckon that Max Boyce Googles himself?

Isn't a giant leek more likely?

Not been seen since the 70's.
